The new year and a new story arc for Gibbs... Well, not exactly new because it turns out the hot lawyer who kept getting in his grill was connected to someone from the past. The hour was also a chance for McGee to go full McGeek, as well as Mr. Palmer to get some airtime dissecting a squirrel. And have I mentioned that the show also included allusions to Thunderball, The Jetsons and the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles? More on the latest NCIS after the jump.

Five TV shows that should recruit Michael Phelps

Time coverIs there a bigger star in the world right this moment than Michael Phelps? He's poised to break Mark Spitz's record seven gold medals in one Olympics. He's already the most honored Olympic champion of all times, having won more gold medals than some entire countries.

Jeremy Schaap was singing his praises on ESPN this morning. Michael Phelps is tall, fit, good looking and has the makings of humongous success. Can't you just see him as a TV star?

As Rich pointed out, being an Olympic champion can sometimes be a launching pad for a career on TV. For most, the fit isn't exactly right, but I think that that was the fault of the producers back then, not the Olympians.

Therefore, I'm going to help Michael and those TV bigwigs with a few ideas. Here's four existing shows that should be writing scripts for Michael Phelps right away, and one remake that's right up his alley.

Military man is the next Bachelor

abc logoU.S. Navy Lieutenant Andy Baldwin, 30, is the next contestant on The Bachelor. It is a game show of sorts, right? For the gals who like men in uniforms, Baldwin is an "undersea medical officer for a special operations dive unit" stationed in Hawaii. Reading the press release that ABC sent us, I'm shocked that he's not taken. He probably sounds better than he is, but still. The guy saved up $25,000 for college, did his undergrad at Duke and went to medical school in California. He's a tri-athlete who competes in honor of his uncle, who died of pancreatic cancer. ABC is all excited about this new guy, dubbing the season "An Officer and a Gentleman". Sorry, no picture yet.

Maybe he's just looking for a girl who can keep up with him. Hopefully they'll cast some athletic women and not just all wanna-be princesses. We'll meet Andy on the 10th season of The Bachelor on ABC next spring.
